What Should You Do for Valentine's Day?
Eat delicious food!
Satisfy your taste buds this Valentine's day with a special, multi-course meal from one of your favorite Kansas City restaurants! From February 13th-15th, the Melting Pot will be offering a 4 course dinner with a champagne toast & rose starting at $132 per couple. Gram and Dun on the plaza will have a few chef-created seafood specials fit for the occasion (four-course menu priced at $55 per person), and La Bodega has a special four-course menu designed by chef Nathan Deters in Leawood and chef English Renshaw. For $45/person you can enjoy risotto made with roasted grape tomatoes, wild arugula, aged fontina and herbs de provence, as well as duck breast with cherry demi, parsnip purée, wild arugula and parmesan from Urban Table! Other recommended restaurants include Ca Va, Manifesto, and The American!
Check out some galleries, or create your own art!
If you're a creative spirit that can't get enough of fine art, enjoy the experience with a loved one on Valentine's Day! A three-hour drive to Bentonville, AR to visit the nationally-acclaimed Crystal Bridges art museum will be well-worth the trip, and you can spend quality time with your partner on the way there! If you want to stay local, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art is absolutely FREE and is offering a Valentine’s Day themed dinner menu ($50 for four courses with an additional $25 for an optional wine pairing). For those who want to make their own artwork, do a 'paint together' class at Hook Gallery or Pinot's Palette. Not only will you get to create a unique painting that you can treasure forever, but you'll also be able to drink wine while you paint!
Enjoy live music!
If you're a music junkie that can't get enough of mosh pits, country twangs and crazy energy, hit up one of the many music venues in Kansas City this Valentines Day. Brad Paisley will be at the Sprint Center on Friday, February 16th and Walker McGuire will be performing at PBR Big Sky on Thursday, February 15th. If you're not so into country, ADULT will be playing at the Record Bar on Valentines Day night. Plus, you can check out A La Mode's Live Jazz! A La Mode takes the authentic smooth, bluesy and improvisational Kanas City jazz style and blends it with Latin-Brazilian, French and gypsy jazz. Simply come to the front desk at Hotel Phillips and a hostess will escort you down the secret entrance.
Dance the night away!
If you'd rather dance the night away, check out the Sexy Salsa Valentine's Day Event at the Overland Park Ballroom. The evening starts at 8:15 with a sexy salsa group lesson just for those new to dancing. This is followed by an hour of latin music to mingle, dance and have a drink. Ticket price includes the beginner lesson, music and dancing until 10, a signature margarita drink and the chip and dip bar! Both individuals and couples are welcome to attend ($20 per person).
If fancy drinks, classy bars and a night you won't remember sound right up your alley, we've got the perfect drink options for your Valentine's Day. Louie's Wine Dive will be offering a remarkable Valentine's Day pre-fixe menu that includes two starters, two entree choices, and one shared dessert for only $70 per couple or $40 per person. PLUS, KC Wineworks will be throwing a 'My Valentine is Wine' event with anti-valentine's day photo props, souvenir photos, a wine-by-the-glass special, an Anti-Valentine's Day Pinata! If you're feeling really adventurous, sign up for a wine making class that you can take together!
Explore the City!
You're quirky. You don't enjoy the mushy-gushy, cliched Valentine's Day activities that most people like. Instead of stuffing your face with chocolates or wasting money on wine, explore some hidden gems of Kansas City! Sign up for a couples scavenger hunt that will test your ability to work together, or cook something at home and picnic over by the Kansas City Convention Center. If you're looking for something spooky, explore the hidden alcoves and crumbling towers of Kansas City's very own castle on Vine Street. For those seeking something a little more romantic, hook your love lock among hundreds of others dangling from the Town of Kansas Bridge. Then, head down the stairs and walk along the Missouri river on a scenic trail!
